‘Reading aloud’ means that adult read the exact wordings from the book to children. Children develop key understanding through the reading process and the relationship between printed word and meaning. It is the foundation of children’s literacy development, which also gives children the idea that the print tells a story or the message which is conveyed. Moreover, through the discussion between teacher and children in class, ‘reading aloud’ helps children connect books with their daily experience, so as to induce the creativity and problem solving skills of children; to develop their comprehension skills, moral value and the whole person development.
‘Promotion of Reading Grant’
